Andes Mint Cookies
these cookies only require 4 ingredients. one of which being Andes Mints. that should be more than enough info for you to make these asap- no?
Andes Mint Cookies (from six sisters stuff)
1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
1/2 cup oil
1 package Andes Mints (or 2 packages. in case you eat some. which you will.)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350° & line baking sheets with Silpat or parchment paper)
Mix cake mix, oil & eggs together. Using a small cookie scop, drop spoonfuls of dough onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes & then remove the baking sheet from the oven- immediately press an Andes onto the top of each cookie- return the baking sheet to the oven for 30 seconds or so. Remove & spread the Andes with the back of a spoon.
Let them sit on the cookie sheet for a minute or so & then cool on a wire rack.
Pour a glass of milk & eat at least 3 right away. it's only right.
These were awesome. I ate them warm & once they were set. Warm was best (as is always the case with cookies) but set was awesome too.
They also ship really well- I let them set & then wrapped them up & mailed some off to a friend.
I also played around with the baking times. The original directions state to bake for 6-9 minutes, take them out, press the Andes on top & give it 5 minutes to melt.
Meh- I decided that my way worked much better. because i'm a genius.
